Grow kits mushroom
$95.00 – $505.00 (-5%)
here’s a whole new cohort of curious folks out there who would love to explore psychedelics or microdose mushrooms but haven’t, simply because they don’t know where to start. They’re not sure where to buy mushrooms, or how to access a safe, reliable supply in the wild (and rightly so: Gathering wild psychedelic mushrooms is for actual mycology pros only). Growing mushrooms at home can be an appealing option, but one that comes with its own set of challenges. Figuring out how to grow mushrooms from scratch can be intimidating. Others are so tired of constant disinfecting in the COVID-19 era that they just can’t be asked to create another sterile space.
While we encourage aspiring fungi-culturists to give growing their own from scratch a shot (and have even assembled a course to walk you through the process!) you may find that a pre-made mushroom growing kit is a low-stakes way to try out mushroom cultivation and see if you enjoy it. Purists will argue that purchasing your own supplies costs less than buying a mushroom growing kit and offers better harvests, but others insist the convenience of a grow kit is worth it. Some recommend using a grow kit before you make the commitment to buying all the supplies you’d need for a homemade grow. The price point for the smaller kits means you can sample the joys of fungi cultivation before diving all the way in.
Here’s a rundown of what to look for in a psychedelic mushroom grow kit, plus our recommendations for the best mushroom growing kits for beginners.
Different kits include different gear, but all of them allow you to grow the mushrooms in a container (typically a box, bag or jar). All kits should include some type of substrate. Substrate is the material that provides nutrition for the mushrooms (think of it as soil for fungi). While entire Reddit threads are devoted to debating the ideal substrate material, substrate is typically composed of some type of grain.
Mushrooms don’t just pop out of the substrate when they’re ready: They actually sprout from the mycelium, a white, fluffy substance that acts as the root system for the mushroom. In the same way a plant has to root and sprout before it flowers, the mycelium has to grow first before it produces any mushrooms. (The terminology can get overwhelming, but just keep in mind the progression of container > substrate > mycelium > mushrooms for when you’re deciding on a grow kit.)
